Death with Dignity Legislative Tracker


An October 2018 survey by Public Policy Polling found 87 percent of Ohioans support the right to “die in as humane and dignified a manner as they see fit,” while 75 percent support death with dignity legislation.


In the 2018 legislative session, Ohio State Senator Charleta Tavares (D-Columbus) sponsored SB 249, Ohio Aid in Dying Act, with co-sponsors Ohio State Senators Joseph Schiavoni (D-33) and Kenny Yuko (D-25). A sponsor hearing on the bill took place in April; the bill did not advance.
